  1. I want to know how you can get the web page font larger? I know I go to view and increase but how do I get it to stay larger. My wife doesn't see very well and doesn't want to have to keep changing it every time she goes to the internet.

    Not sure how you can set it permanetly but a quicker way than going to view is to hold ctrl down on the keyboard and scroll down with your mouse wheel.

    You can set the default font and font size from Tools -> Options -> Content.

    However, as far as I know, stylesheets in websites override that.
